Had it not been for the amazing people at the LFNC I may have spiraled out of control. In a period filled with panic attacks, high anxiety and multiple brain issues they kept me grounded. The support group has been an amazing resource and is inclusive of everyone, No one is ever turned away for lack of resources which puts this in the top of the Lupus Organizations. There is always a friendly face or a welcoming voice and plenty of food! A great organization to get involved with whether you are a patent or just looking for more information.

I am a rheumatologist in the San Francisco Bay Area and have worked with the LFNC since I was a fellow in 1986. Initially, I only used the organization to refer my patients for informative materials and support groups. Later when I became a faculty member at Stanford, I became a speaker for the annual Lupus meeting for many years. For more than a decade that I have been in private practice, I have been a reviewer of articles for the news magazine. The LFNC chapter has been a tremendous resource for my patients and I refer my lupus patients to the organization routinely. R. Elaine Lambert, M.D. Overall rating above expectations
